God in a box?

Had this sent to me by¬†our friend Christine who’d been to a Taize service at Portsmouth Cathedral this weekend – What do you think?

“It’s not all over, this birthing,

there are always newer skies into which God can throw stars.

When we begin to think that we can predict the Advent of God,

that we can box the Christ in a stable at Bethlehem,

that’s just the time that God will be born in a place we can’t imagine and won’t believe.

Those who wait for God watch with their heart and not their eyes,

Listening, always listening, for angel words.”

Can’t help but be excited at the thought of God being born in a place we can’t imagine… a bandstand in a park maybe?
